Starting and Saving Seeds: Grow the Perfect Vegetables, Fruits, Herbs and Flowers for Your Garden
by Julie Thompson-Adolf, 160 pages, 83⁄4x10½ hardcover. Herbs and flowers are given short shrift in seed-saving books, yet this one devotes 52 pages of to this hard-to-find information! Kudos to the author for ferreting out the data and sharing it in a clear and simple format. In this book, the mechanism of pollination along with the required isolation distance is given for about two dozen herbs and many more of the most common flower families—along with keys to seed maturity, processing tips and seed viability. The usual vegetables are also covered in the same basic format, which also includes tips for getting the plants off to a good start. A practical introduction to starting seeds is followed by the basics of seed saving, including harvesting and processing techniques. For someone just getting started with growing plants who wants to develop a relationship with seeds, this is the perfect beginning book. -Nikos Kavanya NEW!
